Off-Duty Police Officer Dressed As Clown For Charity Event Shoots Dead Teenager Who Tried To Rob Him At Gunpoint

An off-duty police officer who was dressed as a clown shot dead a teenager who tried to rob him at gunpoint.

The incident happened as the officer left a fundraiser at the Kiddie Korner Day Care in Chicago just after 10pm on Friday.

As he went to his car, the teenager, named on Saturday as 16-year-old Jerry Moore, approached him and asked him for money, authorities said.

When the officer said he didn’t have any, police say the teen pulled a gun.

After a struggle, the officer grabbed the gun and fired, killing Moore.

The officer sustained minor injuries in the incident

A weapon was recovered from the scene, the Chicago Tribune reports.

One person was also taken into custody.

The charity event, in the city’s South Side, was attended by 50 children.

Authorities haven’t released the name of the officer involved.

The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating.
